Updated: Jul 27, 2023


the piano on the Hindenburg

The Hindenburg was a famous German passenger airship that tragically caught fire and was destroyed while attempting to dock in Lakehurst, New Jersey, on May 6, 1937. The disaster claimed the lives of 36 people. The airship was primarily used for transatlantic passenger flights and was one of the largest airships ever built.


The Hindenburg airship was designed to carry 50 passengers in private cabins at an airspeed of 78 miles an hour. Weight was a major concern.


The Bluthner Grand Piano was reported to have a large and full tone. This was the first piano ever carried on a commercial aircraft. The piano, of course, was not salvageable after the disaster.
